I was going to write about my outside weed garden. But it'll be so much more fun with pictures. Today, a recipe for that abundance of cucumbers people may be getting!
This is a recipe my mom made when I was a kid and now I make it for my kids. They gobble it up!
Sour Cream Cucumbers
Everything here is "to taste." We like ours a tiny bit vinegary and garlicy. So I'll give you approximate measures and you can taste your sour cream mixture until you get it the way your family likes it.
3-4 cucumbers, peeled, if necessary, and very thinly sliced
sour cream, a nice big dollop (maybe 1/2 to 3/4 cup)
garlic powder (about 1 tsp.)
white vinegar (about 2-3 tsp.)
pepper (about 1/8 tsp.)
I remember my mom always put the cucumbers in a colander with salt and ice cubes for a couple of hours (I think to crisp the cucumbers). I usually forget about that step until just about suppertime and the dish still turns out tasty.
Mix together sour cream, garlic powder and vinegar. Taste and adjust. Fold in sliced cucumbers until they're nicely coated. Sprinkle with pepper.
So simple and so good!
